Earlier this year, we relayed reports suggesting Tottenham were interested in making a move for Bayern Munich winger Douglas Costa.

The Brazilian, who scored against Arsenal in the Champions League last season, is believed to be unsettled at Bayern and could be available for around £35 million.

Now, Bayern’s club president Uli Hoeness has told Kicker that Costa will be sold but only for the right price.

“If a club pays the fee that [Bayern CEO] Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has asked for then he will leave,” Hoeness said. “We paid a lot of money for him so we now want more in return.”

He added: “However, as long as he hasn’t signed anywhere else, he will return. If he doesn’t sign [for another club], he will start the season with us on August 18th.”

Manchester United and Manchester City are also believed to be keen on the 26-year-old, which is obviously bad news for Spurs given the wages they will be able to offer.



  1. It never ceases to make me laugh the number of randoms the press attach THFC’s name to, ending with the adage that we either couldn’t afford the said player or we cant afford to pay the kind of wages the wealthier clubs could. Tomorrow it’ll be another random being linked by the press to our club with same closing paragraph. The uneducated will pick it up and demand that Levy pull his finger out. Nothing ever changes, amazing.
